Everybody knows that I made my grand debut in Telugu with Megastar’s ‘Waltair Veerayya’. So after the super success of the movie in which I had my track ‘Boss Party’ which went on to become the most loved and trendiest and most viral song of the year 2023. At the same time, my project ‘Inspector Avinash’ had released in Hindi which received 9/10 on IMDB, which is such a big rating for a show. My performance was very much appreciated by the public and I received critical acclaim for my acting performance. But it wasn’t about that. Apparently, the entire directorial team happened to see the show and ended up liking and admiring my performance and that's how I landed this project.

So I am glad that I am able to work with all my favourite heroes.
